Positive stories of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders' life post-prison release, and design of health-based intervention

 

Overview

The Positive stories of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders' life post-prison release, and design of health-based intervention project is endorsed as an in-kind project of the Lowitja Institute (formerly the Cooperative Research Center for Aboriginal Health) and administered by the University of Queensland. This is a qualitative research project that has a two-fold aim:

  1. to enhance the appropriateness of a health-based intervention for Indigenous people post-prison release
    • this is to be evaluated by a longitudinal randomised-controlled trial titled Passports to advantage: health and capacity building as a basis for social integration
  2. to constitute part of a PhD research project to develop an understanding of the lived-experience of community (re)integration for Indigenous people post-prison release, and the loci of strengths drawn upon since release.

The project consists of two phases:

The research design was developed through discussions with Indigenous community members and health workers. The development of a stories booklet based on interview data is expected to occur as an outcome of the study.
